Resident Evil Village

PC

Dustin BaileyMay 05, 2021
Resident Evil Village pulls the best bits from the series' past and recombines them into something fresh and surprising. It can’t maintain that momentum for its entire run, but Village’s heights are among the best in Resident Evil's illustrious history.

Total War: ROME REMASTERED

PC

Joe RobinsonApr 28, 2021
A lovingly crafted refresh of a classic Total War game that manages to recapture both its triumphs and its tragedies.

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139...

PC

Ian BoudreauApr 22, 2021
Some creaky design concepts that don't hold up well and a slipshod PC port hold Nier Replicant back from greatness on PC.

Stellaris: Nemesis

PC
8.00
Marcello PerriconeApr 13, 2021
The new choices encourage more long-term strategy and player agency from the early game in order to attain objectives at the end of a campaign, while breathing new life into recently introduced features. Stellaris has long needed a new endgame, and at last, it has one.

Outriders

PC
7.00
Jordan ForwardApr 06, 2021
Outriders' fast-paced combat and imaginative sci-fi setting make it a journey worth taking. And for all its flaws, this could be the start of something very special for developer People Can Fly.

Stronghold: Warlords

PC
7.00
Ian BoudreauMar 08, 2021
While missions can be frustrating and the new diplomacy system is nothing to write home about, Stronghold: Warlords should satisfy devoted fans with its new, gorgeously realised setting.

Loop Hero

PC
8.00
Ian BoudreauMar 04, 2021
Loop Hero successfully borrows from a surprising range of genres to create a refreshing new twist on some very old RPG ideas.

Persona 5 Strikers

PC
8.00
Diego ArguelloFeb 09, 2021
The Phantom Thieves arrive on PC in a more streamlined form than the main Persona series, but an equally engaging one that's as stylish as it is action packed.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood

PC
4.00
Dave IrwinFeb 04, 2021
Skills are unbalanced, giving me no incentive to do anything other than heal. Not even the side quests, which task you with finding hidden spirits or shrines in the hub world, bear any tangible rewards to make them worthwhile.

The Medium

PC

Jordan ForwardJan 27, 2021
Bloober Team does well to keep things taut all the way to the end, but there's a frustrating amount of untapped potential beneath its gameplay gimmicks and art direction.

HITMAN 3

PC
8.00
Jordan ForwardJan 19, 2021
They do also lead to a disappointing finale, but the good generally outweighs the bad. Hopefully, this experimentation finds fertile ground in IO’s upcoming Bond game, because I don’t want to wait for another Hitman trilogy to play another stealth game this good.

Cyberpunk 2077

PC
9.00
Richard Scott-JonesDec 07, 2020
Groundbreaking, but not quite as much as you're hoping it is. Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't surpass its brilliant influences, but in Night City, Johnny Silverhand, and its chilling vision of hyper-capitalism, it claims territory of its own.

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands

PC
8.00
Heather NewmanDec 04, 2020
WoW's latest chapter offers a gorgeous leveling experience, interesting endgame systems, and a pile of well-designed dungeons. Though some rough edges remain, ongoing hotfixes are chipping away at them.

Per Aspera

PC
8.00
Gina LeesDec 03, 2020
A smart, sprawling city builder that explores the cost of humanity's need to conquer through the mind of an AI, blurring the line between duty and morality. It requires some patience, but its quiet chills are unique in the genre.

Total War: WARHAMMER II - The Twisted & The Twilight

PC
7.00
Sean MartinDec 02, 2020
I think it’s safe to say we’re beyond the best of what Total War: Warhammer II’s DLC can offer at this point. With exceptions such as Thanquol, for whom Creative Assembly probably has bigger plans, the most iconic rivalries and biggest names missing from the vanilla release have now been added.

Twin Mirror

PC
7.00
Gina LeesDec 01, 2020
Twin Mirror finds itself in its compelling mystery, secluded sleepy town setting, and Sam’s interactions with all the friends he left behind two years ago. There’s a lot of anger in Basswood towards Sam, and that anger singes Sam’s already fragile state, but there are also sweet moments of resolution as Sam accumulates mementos and has frank, overdue conversations.

Immortals: Fenyx Rising

PC
7.00
Iain HarrisNov 30, 2020
Like any good animated movie, there’s humour and joy to be found for adults or children. The story doesn’t always keep its hooks in you, and sometimes undermines its positive moral lesson with acts of gross tone-deafness. That aside, there are some great characters among the Olympians and Ubisoft does an excellent job of building empathy for them so you’re keen to stick around for what happens next.

Empire of Sin

PC
7.00
Joe RobinsonNov 30, 2020
Ambushing an enemy squad or rolling over a racket in seconds is quite satisfying, and there is yet more I haven’t had a chance to mention – such as managing your rackets or what happens when you linger too long any one building. Though the tactical combat grates after a while, there are plenty of little moments that maintain this game’s allure, like that grimy, imperfect dive bar you just love to keep going back to.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light

PC
8.00
Richard Scott-JonesNov 26, 2020
Beyond Light is undoubtedly in the upper tier of Destiny expansions, but its arrival has disrupted the game in ways that pose big challenges for Bungie in the months ahead.

Football Manager 2021

PC
9.00
Ian BoudreauNov 25, 2020
Those have been plenty of fun, but neither game can really hold a candle to the sense of well-earned accomplishment found in Football Manager 2021 – whether you’re hoisting a cup at the end of the season or not.

Mars Horizon

PC
8.00
Joe RobinsonNov 20, 2020
Mars Horizon probably isn’t capable of capturing your heart in the same way, but it does allow you to play a game about going into space that won’t require you to have a science degree. It respects your time, has some smart design choices, and it’s fun. It’s also pretty and charming to boot, and I’m glad it’s here to inspire new generations of space explorers.

Godfall

PC
5.00
Iain HarrisNov 16, 2020
While Godfall can feel good from moment-to-moment thanks to a serviceable, occasionally rewarding combat system, it’s not enough to sustain interest when the game around it is so uninspiring. It’s not all bad, but you’d hope for more if you’re buying something for next-gen prices.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

PC
9.00
Jordan ForwardNov 13, 2020
Treyarch's latest feels like it's only a few quality of life changes away from being the perfect revival of the Black Ops series. It delivers on all three fronts and manages to subtly freshen some of the series' most stale ingredients.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

PC
8.00
Richard Scott-JonesNov 13, 2020
I didn’t expect much from Odyssey so was pleasantly surprised, and given my fondness for Valhalla’s setting, perhaps I was too eager to be blown away. So I want to end on a positive note. I’ve enjoyed Valhalla very much. It’s certainly the best Assassin’s Creed since Origins set the new format, and maybe even the best ever. It seems churlish to ask for more than that.

Fuser

PC
7.00
Malindy HetfeldNov 06, 2020
A game geared more towards music lovers than high-score hunters, Fuser still feels like an experiment – but it’s one worth keeping your eye on.
